Background The WDFW, the Lummi Nation, the Nooksack Indian Tribe, the Upper Skagit Indian Tribe, and the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community, have jointly submitted to NMFS HGMPs for 11 PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 39911 hatchery programs in the Nooksack River Basin in Washington State. The HGMPs were updated and submitted to NMFS from 2013 to 2015, pursuant to limit 6 of the 4(d) Rule for salmon and steelhead. The hatchery programs include releases of ESA-listed Chinook salmon, and non-listed coho, pink, and fall-run chum salmon into the Nooksack River Basin. NEPA requires Federal agencies to conduct environmental analyses of their proposed major actions to determine if the actions may affect the human environment. NMFS’s action of determining that the co-managers’ HGMPs meet criteria under Limit 6 of the 4(d) Rule for salmon and steelhead promulgated under the ESA, is a major Federal action subject to environmental review under NEPA. Therefore, NMFS is seeking public input on the scope of the required NEPA analysis, including the range of reasonable alternatives, recommendations for relevant analysis methods, and information associated with impacts of the alternatives to the resources listed below or other relevant resources. NMFS will perform an environmental review of the HGMPs and prepare an EIS that will identify potentially significant direct, indirect, and cumulative impacts on the following resources that may be affected by the Proposed Action or its alternatives: • Listed and Non-listed Species and their habitats • Water Quantity • Socioeconomics • Environmental Justice • Cumulative Impacts NMFS will rigorously explore and objectively evaluate a full range of reasonable alternatives in the EIS, including the Proposed Action and a noaction alternative. Other alternatives may include a decreased production alternative.

Background

    The WDFW, the Lummi Nation, the Nooksack Indian Tribe, the Upper 
Skagit Indian Tribe, and the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community, have 
jointly submitted to NMFS HGMPs for 11 hatchery programs in the 
Nooksack River Basin in Washington State. The HGMPs were updated and 
submitted to NMFS from 2013 to 2015, pursuant to limit 6 of the 4(d) 
Rule for salmon and steelhead. The hatchery programs include releases 
of ESA-listed Chinook salmon, and non-listed coho, pink, and fall-run 
chum salmon into the Nooksack River Basin.
    NEPA requires Federal agencies to conduct environmental analyses of 
their proposed major actions to determine if the actions may affect the

HGMPs meet criteria under Limit 6 of the 4(d) Rule for salmon and 
steelhead promulgated under the ESA, is a major Federal action subject 
to environmental review under NEPA. Therefore, NMFS is seeking public 
input on the scope of the required NEPA analysis, including the range 
of reasonable alternatives, recommendations for relevant analysis 
methods, and information associated with impacts of the alternatives to 
the resources listed below or other relevant resources.
    NMFS will perform an environmental review of the HGMPs and prepare 
an EIS that will identify potentially significant direct, indirect, and 
cumulative impacts on the following resources that may be affected by 
the Proposed Action or its alternatives:

 Listed and Non-listed Species and their habitats
 Water Quantity
 Socioeconomics
 Environmental Justice
 Cumulative Impacts

    NMFS will rigorously explore and objectively evaluate a full range 
of reasonable alternatives in the EIS, including the Proposed Action 
and a no-action alternative. Other alternatives may include a decreased 
production alternative.
    For all potentially significant impacts, the EIS will identify 
measures to avoid, minimize, and mitigate the impacts, where feasible.
